Baby Food

So what kind of food should one serve at a baby shower? Baby food, of course! It was the perfect choice for our Sunday brunch shower. Here’s our "baby food" menu:

 

Salad:
Baby Greens with

French Vinaigrette and

Toasty Warm Goat Cheese

 

Main Course:Hogs and Quiches

Roasted Baby Carrots

Oh, Baby! Broccoli Salad

Bun in the Oven Rolls with

Little Honey Butter

Dessert:Ice Cream and "Pickles"

Petit Fours

Beverages:Tiny Bubbles (Champagne)
"Baby Won't" Wine

(Pinot Noir or Pinot Grigio)

Baby Blue Punch

Sodas, Water, Coffee, Tea

For our "hogs", we offered bacon, sausages, and sweet bacon and sausage bites; our "quiches" selection included: Quiche Lorraine, Three-Mushroom Quiche, Broccoli and Cheese Quiche, and Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Quiche. My brother loves cars, so we're decorating the baby's room with a vintage car theme. In homage to my own brother's childhood filled with Tonka trucks and Matchbox cars, we found some vintage Tonkas on ebay.com to use as serving dishes. The red and yellow pieces seen here next to our salad course housed the Little Honey Butter (which was in plastic liners so the butter didn’t touch the trucks). We also had a blue "monster" Tonka that carried a truckload of sour cream.

Perhaps our most surprising "baby" food was ice cream and pickles for dessert. We served a scoop of French vanilla ice cream in martini glasses with a "pickle" garnish. The pickles were actually sugar cookies with key lime frosting made by the talented team that owns Flour & Flower. They used different shades of green icing and tiny dark green icing dots to make a very realistic looking dill pickle! They were a perfect accompaniment to our Baby Blue Punch. Here's the recipe (it really is delicious!) which makes about 40-50 servings:

Ingredients:

2 packages of blue Kool-Aid (we got the berry blue flavor), unsweetened
1 bottle of lemon-lime soda
2 bottles of white cranberry juice
¾ cup of white sugar
½ gallon of French Vanilla ice cream

Pour the Kool-Aid powder into a large punch bowl.
Add the lemon lime soda and cranberry juice.
Stir in the sugar.
Scoop the ice cream on top and serve.
